We arrived late in the afternoon and Kristy was super helpful. She helped us find a suitable B&B and then got us a reservation on the whale watching tour! We could not have got it all organized so quickly without her.

This is a fairly new centre in Duncan and I found the architectural design especially inside very appealing. The staff were very knowledgeable of the area and helpful with my requests for free resources for my students.
